CHAMPAIGN -- A city street got a new name Thursday. Saber Drive is now "Tom Harrington, Sr., Way." It's between Mattis Avenue and Olympian Drive.

Harrington was known for working as a Champaign County public defender. He was also involved in a variety of real estate developments in the city and was one of the driving forces behind building a Catholic high school nearby, St. Thomas More.
